Herndon Reston Cares

Delivering compassion and building business one meal at a time.

Every day seems to bring new stories about COVID-19 and the impact it’s having on individuals, businesses, communities, and local, national, and global economies.  To help address heightened food insecurity, employment stability concerns, and small business viability at the local level, the First Baptist Church of Herndon, in concert with other Herndon/Reston congregations, is leading a campaign to order weekly takeout dinners from your favorite local restaurants and to provide these to community members who are feeling financial strain during these difficult days.  Your donation of approximately $10 can provide one takeout dinner for someone in need, and, at the same time, it can help a neighbor to remain employed and a business to be successful.    


We’re hearing multiple accounts of neighbors in desperate need of food, and we  anticipate at least 1,000 community members in zip codes 20170, 20171, 20190, and 20194 to request a weekly dinner.  We already have 800 people signed up. We also expect some of your favorite local restaurants to participate. These include Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern, Virginia Kitchen, 100 Bowls of Soup, Great Harvest Bread, Willard's BBQ, Charcoal Kabob, Apple Spice Junction, Enatye Ethiopian, and Mr. Pepperoni Pizza.

Thank you for making a difference.  As more neighbors sign up for meals, we’ll let you know our progress and adjust our fundraising goal, as appropriate.  If you have any questions, please contact K Scarry of First Baptist Church at [email redacted] or (703) [phone redacted].

The First Baptist Church of Herndon is the fiscal sponsor for this initiative. They are doing all of the accounting for this work. We receive the money and then use it to buy meals from local restaurants. Those meals are then distributed to community members in need of meal during these days.
